§ 50. Mr. Ronald King Murray
asked the Lord Advocate whether he is satisfied with the working of the Criminal Appeal (Scotland) Act, 1926; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Lord Advocate
As the hon. and learned Member is aware, appeal procedure is under consideration by the Thomson Committee. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I have, however, asked the Committee to consider, and to report as soon as possible on, the appeal procedure under the Criminal Appeal (Scotland) Act, 1926, without waiting for its final report which may not be available for some considerable time.
